There is no sign of bitterness or rivalry at the Supreme Court in Abuja where Tarzoor versus Ortom appeal has been scheduled to be held. Supporters of both PDP and APC are exchanging banters. Many have sat together and are sharing experiences. Am sitting next to my friend Dr Tsetim Ayargwer, PDP Deputy State chairman. I just chatted with Bem Dzoho, my neighbour and PDP State Secretary. APC and PDP lawyers are so many here. Sitting next to me is James Okefe, Deputy Speaker, Benue State House of Assembly. I asked him which party he came to support and he said APC of course because PDP expelled him and he has no option than to pitch tent with APC. He also told me that this is his first experience of coming to the Supreme Court.
Dr Ayargwer also told me not to mind party differences. Perhaps that’s why Works and transport Commissioner, Emmanuel Manger is flanked by Dzoho and Cletus Upaa, both PDP stalwarts while he belongs to the APC.
But someone here does not want to exchange pleasantries with me, although I sent to call his attention.
Its 8.10 am here.
We might learn from this experience as we expect Governor Samuel Ortom who promised to be in court personally, any moment.
